Husky Energy Enters Its 75th Year
CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/16/13 -- This year Husky
Energy (TSX:HSE) is celebrating 75 years as a pioneer in Canadian
From its humble beginnings in 1938 as a small, family-owned asphalt
and bunker fuel business, Husky has grown into one of Canada's
largest integrated energy companies. Today, its operations span from
its foundation in Western Canada, to the Midwestern United States,
the shores of the Atlantic, and to the emerging energy markets in the
Asia Pacific region.
"For three quarters of a century our people have been on the front
line of oil and gas exploration," said CEO Asim Ghosh. "We have been
a pioneer in heavy oil technology, a leader in the exploration and
development of Western Canada and the Atlantic Region, at the
forefront of new developments in the Asia Pacific Region, and a
responsible citizen in our communities."
Husky's roots can be traced back to Cody, Wyoming, where our founders
established a small refinery selling asphalt and bunker fuel. In
1946, the refinery was moved to Lloydminster on the
Alberta/Saskatchewan border to tap the region's rich heavy oil
resources and over seven decades the Company has built a business in
the community that includes an asphalt refinery, heavy oil upgrader
and ethanol plant.
Operations have expanded throughout Western Canada and are supported
by refining interests in the United States. Today, the Company is
developing new growth pillars in the Asia Pacific Region, the Oil
Sands, and the Atlantic Region.
"We continue to build on Husky's proud record of achievement as we
create the next generation of growth for the Company and our
shareholders," said Ghosh.
Husky now has more than 5,000 employees and annual production of
approximately 300,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
